Sighting for August 28, 2013

Greg Dell

My garden in Hockessin
New Castle County, DE

My first ever Giant Swallowtail! It stuck around long enough for me to get my camera. Last year I planted two Northern Prickly Ash shrubs with the hope that these might eventually attract some Giant Swallowtails. Did they have anything to do with this sighting? I don’t know!
